HP Talking The Talk
Bill Veghte (pictured left), Hewlett-Packard's former COO who took a new job as enterprise group executive vice president and cloud business just last week, and Dion Weisler (pictured right), a former HP Asia Pacific and Japan senior executive who two months ago took over as executive vice president of HP's Printing and Personal Systems Group, addressed partners for the first time during the company's quarterly partner webcast. The two executives spoke about the intensely competitive landscape including the battle with Dell and new partner opportunities. HP CEO Meg Whitman, HP Software Executive Vice President George Kadifa and HP Senior Vice President PPS Jos Brenkel also took questions. Here are excerpts from the partner webcast.
